Jim is an Osage Native American rancher and former oil "wildcatter" who has become a dear member of the Sage Hawk family. Jim was one of Sage Hawk's very first financial sponsors.

Jim is the owner of The Lodge at Taylor Ranch just outside Pawhuska, Oklahoma, home to two of Oklahoma's premiere disc golf courses.
